Stardog, a venture-backed enterprise software company and provider of Enterprise Knowledge Graph tech, announced the release of a new and improved version of its platform.

As Technical.ly DC previously reported, a knowledge graph is a technique for managing large datasets. Stardog’s Knowledge Graph platform offerings provide software to help enterprises manage those large datasets.

The Arlington, Va.-based company released Stardog 7.0, which includes a faster storage engine to improve write performance, the company said. To decrease the need for IT professionals to keep up with changing data locations, the platform update also includes virtual transparency, which automatically determines the location of virtualized data sources needed to answer queries, the press release states.

“We look forward to introducing Stardog 7 to the market,” Kendall Clark, CTO of Stardog, said in a statement. “Not only is Stardog 7 significantly faster, but it supports production applications with multiple users with near real-time results, while maintaining multiple points of view on an organization’s data to facilitate seamless collaboration.

Stardog was recently recognized on the DBTA Top 100 Company That Matters Most in Data alongside other notable companies like Accenture, VMware, MongoDB and Amazon Web Services. The product update comes after the company announced the release of its product in a free, hosted environment, called Stardog Sandbox earlier this year. Users can use the sandbox to experiment with queries, mappings, and capabilities with no installation, setup, or configuration required.

“Even when a database is being updated with very large transactions that might run for hours, smaller transactions will not be blocked and will be completed in milliseconds. Stardog 7 is a data management game changer,” Clark said.
